Advice for Billionaires on Getting Things Done

Thursday, May 08, 2008 | 02:00 PM

Nice productivity round up for you billionaire TBP readers -- but much of the advice is applicable to everyone else.

While toys and baubles are nice, the one thing you can never have enough of is free time. "Days, hours and minutes are the new currency, the units by which the very successful measure their worth."

So how does one perfect the art of time hogging? Here, a few tips from the masters:

Delegate the delegating.
Don’t read—digest.
Jump the gun.
Don’t divorce.
Skip the party.

Note that the headings do not do the piece justice -- you really have to click through and read it.

My favorite quote in the piece? "Marrying a mistress just creates a vacancy." 

Man, that's just cold.

Reminds me of this:

Apparently time is precious... Precious enough that the ultra-rich will pay 300k in order to not be able to know it...
